#13 - UTVUnderground Approved
- Jul 30, 2009
On my big monitor in my office it looks like a rzr with a white top white fenders and black hood. I could be wrong though.
I dont want to derail the thread but this is a good point. We need some sort of approved way to let everyone know you are ok after a crash or breakdown so people don't slow down to investigate. If you are stuck out there all day you will definitely not want to sit there and thumbs up everyone, you will get bored and tired. I try to sit my helmet on the seat so people don't slow down to look for a broken body. I also push my quad far off the course so people don't slow down or have any chance of hitting it on accident. Maybe the UTV guys can put their helmets on the roof and that can communicate that all is well?Not stopping is bullshit.
You know what else is bullshit. Not signaling to other racers that you are OK.
Come across a wrecked car. Instead of taking the time to give thumbs up. They just sit there and stare at you, Pissed off cause there are broke. Meanwhile we are slowing down, or stopping wasting our time to make sure things are good. This happens about 70% of the time. Buggys and Trucks 100% of the time.
How many times have you come across a motorcycle laying off in the weeds with the driver laying there taking a nap. Scary when you think he is dead. Only to have him lift his head and wave, after your almost stopped.
When we are broke down. I try and make it clear that we are "OK". So other racers don't waste their time slowing down.
If it wasn't Perkins, you should clear their nameThey were able to call me back today and I talked with him.
They thought it was clear to get around on the right. A bush or part of the berm bumped their car into ours. The codriver told driver that car looked ok and did not see the roll. He apologized and did not realize we went over.
I want to thank them for calling us.
